- Conor McGregor got into a social media spat with Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green over the weekend. Green, who wears No. 23, posted a photo of McGregor wearing a No. 23 Warriors jersey on Instagram with the caption: "We rocking with Floyd bro not you... take that off bruh." McGregor responded that he was wearing a CJ Watson jersey.

"That's C.J. Watson, mate. I don't know who the f*ck you are. No disrespect tho kid, keep hustling and stay in school," McGregor wrote. "Now ask yourself why I'm rocking C.J. when I don't give a f*ck about basketball. I dribble head off the floor. Not a ball. This is no game here, kid."

McGregor's support for Watson comes at the expense of Floyd Mayweather, Jr. Mayweather was jailed in 2010 for battering Josie Harris, the mother to three of his children. Mayweather had split with Harris but found messages on her phone from Watson, which reportedly led to the assault.
